94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Signature is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon yet includes 8% Petit Verdot, all aged 22 months in new French oak. This saturated purple-hued beauty boasts a deep, medium to full-bodied, concentrated vibe as well as terrific notes of spice black cherries, currants, graphite, cedarwood, and a kiss of chocolate.
Dark plum, blackberries, cassis, and anise aromas give way to a big, well-structured wine. Mouth-filling and rich with delicious flavors of black fruits, flowers and toasted spice. The finish draws itself out delightfully. Drinkable right away but will age for well over a decade.

Enjoy 12 bottles of our 2015 Estate Reserve Cabernet (94 Points Jeb Dunnuck) for this special price.
The 2018 is one of those vintages that produced both an abundance of fruit, and super high quality at the same time. In this case, the Malbec was harvested twice, once for this rose, and for crop-thinning and second for our red programs. Here the saignée process was used as well on the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Franc, and to a lesser extent on the Merlot. Greater concentration on the reds means lots of beautifully balanced and flavorful rosé wine. This turned out to be aromatically spicy, medium-full body, and medium color pink – with bright cherry-berry, rhubarb and herbs, snappy fresh acidity and an unusually long finish.
Only the third year we have made this wine and already it has become one of our most popular. Blended from mostly estate fruit to create this beautiful and approachable Cabernet Sauvignon. We have set a club member price of just $33.33/bottle on this wine making it a great cabernet for everyday drinking.

97+ Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
“Made up of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep purple-black 2016 Eloge Proprietary Red Wine is provocatively scented of crushed black cherries, red and black currants and kirsch with nuances of Indian spices, cardamom, forest floor, smoked meats and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied and strutting a lot of poise on the palate, it gives layer upon layer of red and black fruits with loads of earthy sparks and a finely textured finish.”
94 points Robert Parker. Rounded sweet tannins, full bodied on the mouth, ripe rich black fruit, mocha and chocolate with a generous rich finish.

A marvelously ripe and powerful Cabernet, dominated by our Block #3 Eisele Clone, and raised in new French oak. Just eight barrels produced each year of this wine.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature has a nose of baked blackberries, black cherries and earthy notions with hints of underbrush, bay leaves and meat. Full-bodied and full-on savory in the mouth, it has chewy tannins and a meaty/peppery finish." 94+ pts Robert Parker

Just releasing now, the new 2016 Right Bank is an absolutely smashing blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, and the balance in Merlot from our estate. Powerful bright red and black fruits, with a fresh cedar plank, spice and snappy mineral tinged berry flavors. Tight right now, but opens with aeration. This is a real triumph for us, and one of the best Right Banks in a long while.
